History and Geography
History – Miss K Dennis
History is taught as part of the International Primary Curriculum. Topics are designed to not only develop children’s knowledge of different periods of history in both the United Kingdom and around the globe, it also encourages progress in key historical skills which include:
Historical Interpretation and Enquiry
Organisation and Communication? (Year 3- 6 only).
In addition, key dates and anniversaries are celebrated throughout the year. This includes Black History Month and Remembrance Day. This gives children the opportunity to have a greater understanding of the world around them, whilst also promoting tolerance and equality.
